Other people’s windows are endlessly fascinating. Each frames a glimpse into someone else’s life. An oblong peephole. Some windows are carefully stage-managed, filled with consciously chosen cues. Other less considered arrangements can be even more revealing.
Some build barriers against the world outside. Others engage with passers-by, telling a story – fact or fiction – about the people living there. Whether contrived or carefree, each of these windows says something about its owners. The observant passer-by might catch a moment of self-expression. For some, the sill is an outdoor mantelpiece on which to celebrate prized possessions. For others, it’s a place to discard the unwanted; objects unworthy of display inside that will ironically garner more attention outside.
This ongoing project documents these defined rectangles and all they reveal. A picture of London’s suburbs, framed in the windows of its residents.
Writer some days. Photographer others. Happy most days. Ecstatic others.
